Current Topic:
only bad attitude causes economic loss in peaceful use of atomic power plants
I too would rather live next to a nuke plant than MANY other kinds of plants, especially a petro-chemical plant or refinery, of which we have many here in Houston, but the simple fact is that I had a greater risk of dying coming to work this morning in my car than of dying due to a nuclear power plant accident in my entire lifetime, and I have to do that twice a day. With some of the new designs in prototype and design stages, that already very small risk is being reduced even further.
